Rosa's story

Rosa, 34, is married to Roger and has five children. They all live in their own house.

Rosa's business is selling food. She has all the necessary implements, such as containers, spoons, and bottles, because her job requires that she transport the food to her customers' workplaces, which are sawmills or institutions that are open all the time. She has run her business for two years and she works alone.

She likes her business because it allows her to have a fixed income to help her husband with the household expenses. She wants to progress and give her family a better quality of life. On the other hand, what she doesn't like is that her business is still small. She wants to be able to make it grow to increase her income.

Currently she'll request 1500 soles [PEN]. She's grateful for this financial opportunity and promises to make her payments punctually. With the requested amount she'll buy food wholesale, such as rice, oil, pasta, and other ingredients.
